This is a glorious little rural estate in Kipilovo, a village nestled in the Stara Planina Mountains, 50km from Sliven in South East Bulgaria. The property consists of a luxury villa, cottage, barn and pool. All have been lovingly refurbished, extended and luxuriously equipped with complete escape in mind as this is our home from home. It’s huge & complete with sun terrace, pergola, garden, above ground pool-it’s luxury off the beaten track. It easily sleeps 8 but is great for a smaller number or couple who love space. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in the main house & double sofa bed in the sitting room as an extra (or for falling asleep in front of a movie). Then the cottage next to it, within the grounds we have made into a beautiful fully fitted studio flat with a large double sofa bed, fitted kitchen and huge bathroom. It has all the things you may need need-dishwasher, 2 fitted kitchens, fridge-freezer, 2 washing machines, satellite TV, internet-wifi etc, tons of china, glassware, towels, bedding and so on. The cottage bathroom also has an outside door so you can use it before getting in the above ground pool or afterwards.
It’s in a working rural village and there are some beautiful towns like Elena 30km away with great restaurants but this is really self catering heaven. Its worth stocking up on route although lots of little shops in the village have the basics. We live in London but go over there whenever we can as it’s our dream place. We have a caretaker who is a best mate and speaks really good English and he lives a few doors away and will show visitors round, sort out keys and help with anything but it will be all yours entirely if you want to rent it. Our place is for people who want to get away from it all and chill out. This is no tourist destination but perfect if you want to see rural Bulgaria or use it as a base to tour from or just to read, paint, sunbathe or party. We eat outside and barbecue every night as it’s so glorious. We have even restored the barn if you want to play pool or games.
It’s about 1.5hrs from the Black sea. 2.5 hours from Plovdiv (Ryan air cheap flights go there) 4 hrs from Sofia or 2hrs from Bourgas. You need to hire a car but the good thing is Bulgaria outside the tourist zones is really cheap and the food and wine is fabulous.
We rent out the entire place as one property for a minimum stay of five nights. We don’t let it for single nights or by numbers of guests. The rent includes bills. There are more details on the website we have made for our place.
There are no rules-except don't break things! Just enjoy.
